Error values: If a syntax rule is not followed, the formula will return an error value. If Al0 holds a nonnumber, then =SQRT(Al) cannot give a valid result, so it returns an error val ue (in this case #VALUEl). The error values are: #DIVjO! #NAME? #NjA #NULL! Division by zero. This would be the result, for example, of=AljBl ifBl hadazero value. Note that a blank cell is treated as having a zero value when used in a numeric context like this. This results when a formula contains an undefined variable or function name.

C) Go to Home I Number and change General in the top box to Number and then use the Increase Decimal tool to have four decimal places showing. (d) Select A2:El0 and use the shortcut [Ctrll+C to copy; move to A12 an d use ICtrll+Vto paste. (e) Change A12 to read Degrees. Replace the formulas in A13:A20 by the values 45, 90,... 360. Edit the formulas in B13:E13 to read =SIN(RADIANS(A13». =DE6REES(813). =COS(RADIANS(A13), and =DE6REES(ACOS(D13», respectively. Copy B13:E 13 down to row 20.
